An Israeli air strike in Gaza killed the Hamas military chief. Hamas claims that the Israeli air strike, which killed Ahmed Jabari, the chief of its military wing, "has opened the gates of hell."
According to the Daily Telegraph of London, "Jabari, who is the most senior Hamas official to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago, was killed in an air strike on a vehicle, in a dramatic resumption of Israel’s policy of assassinating Palestinian militant leaders."
Jabari has long topped Israel's most-wanted list and was blamed for a string of attacks that included the kidnapping of Gilad Schalit, an Israeli soldier, in 2006.
As reported by the Telegraph, "his son was also reportedly killed in the targeted air strike, according to Osama Hamdan, a Hamas representative in Lebanon, talking to Al-Jazeera in Doha."
In more than 20 Israeli strikes, at least six Gazans were killed, according to Hamas.
